Ariana Grande makes botched Japanese tattoo even worse

She continued, "also.huge fan of tiny bbq grills".

Except the best-laid tattoo plans of pop stars often go awry and Grande accidentally tattooed the word for "shichirin" or "七輪", which translates to a small Japanese charcoal grill, after nixing two important characters from the phrase.

"If I miss it enough, I'll suffer thru the whole thing next time", she said, later writing "Pls leave me and my tambourine grill alone. thank u".

Ariana Grande's Tattoogate shows no sign of quieting down.

On Wednesday, the 25-year-old singer posted a photo of her newest tattoo, which was meant to spell out the name of her hit single "7 Rings", but as Twitter users pointed out, "七輪" actually translates in Japanese to a small charcoal grill.

Clearly, Grande should stop trying to get this tattoo corrected.




Grande also included a screenshot of a conversation she had with her tutor, who advised the singer to add the character for finger "指" above and in the middle of the "barbecue grill" text. The post now appears to be deleted. "And to my doctor for the (numbing medication) lidocaine shots (no joke)", the star wrote alongside a black and white snap of her design on her Instagram Stories.

"Slightly better", she wrote. "Thanks to my tutor for helping me fix".

However, the new symbol has been added underneath the character for seven, rather than in-between and above the original inking. "I actually really liked u".

Ariana Grande's tattoo now reads "Japanese BBQ finger".

But get this, sources close to TMZ are saying that Ariana Grande's tattoo edit still doesn't read or convey "7 Rings" as intended. If it's read left to right, it still translates to "small barbecue grill finger ♥".
